Full article: 9-11/Pentagon

The Pentagon, headquarters of the US Department of Defence was attacked, allegedly by a hijacked jetliner on 9/11. The attackers targeted the recently strengthened wing where accountants from the ONI were investigating corruption.


Deputy Defense Secretary Robert O. Work ordered a study into "defense spending". When it revealed $125 billion in wasteful spending, it was suppressed amid fear that it might lead US Congress to reduce the Pentagon's budget.[1]
